Morning all, I have 2 art pad cards to share today
This first one was made for us by the lovely Amanda Stokes who helps make samples for our shop
A few of you have asked about die cutting our new toppers. Some of the images are a little bit smaller but when you take into account how many extra you get for the same money we thought it was a good compromise. With 60 images in each pad for just £6.00 with free worldwide postage they are a fantastic buy.
There are two images on each page in the new pads and they will still fit in many of the basic shape dies or look great just used as a square or rectangle with no die cutting necessary
I’ve chosen these two cards today because they are perfect examples of how to get round it if the die you want to use is just a bit too big. Mary and Amanda both used a circle die that was a little bit larger than the image and offset it. Amanda cleverly disguised the flat edge with a sentiment on her card and Mary placed the image to one side. Mary often does this with her cards even when it’s not necessary and I think it’s a great effect
Hope that’s given you a bit of inspiration, I’ll have a few more cards to show you using the new art pads in the coming week. I have a new Sketch for tomorrow and then on Sunday it’s the last card from our August guest designer Vicky so make sure you stop by over the weekend
